Abstract

In this chapter, we will look at the context within which CPD operates in Bangladesh and describe earlier and concurrent approaches to dealing with an overwhelming need for in-service training of teachers. We will then outline the innovative concept of mediated video that EIA has developed using materials on Secure Digital (SD) cards in accessible low-cost mobile phones to deliver a more personalized and reflective approach to teacher professional development and also tell the story from the perspective of a teacher participating in the project. The chapter will conclude by discussing how the EIA approach is demonstrating the potential to be a very effective model for continuing professional development (CPD), particularly in development contexts, being scaleable, adaptable, sustainable and economically viable for both teachers and governments.
